The stadium is a 5-minute walk from our tailgate. Personal coolers are allowed in the event area.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Parking on game day

The grass portion of Lot X is a cash lot on gameday, so anyone can pay to park there on gameday. The money goes to the county, not us. If you are comfortable waiting to pay until gameday, Lot X will be the most convenient. The events and tailgate are beside each other. Enter through the Gator Bowl Blvd road. That funnels traffic into Lot X, there is nothing blocking or diverting traffic to Lot X. The cement portion of Lot X have been reserved by the Jaguars for Arrowhead South.

There is no parking inside the event space, only parking is on the other side of the fence next to our event space in Lot X. There is no free parking anywhere near the stadium.

If you are worried about parking in lot X because you are coming later, might be filled up, you can book through the site Fairgrounds ahead of time and walk over to Lot X. It is a short 5-7-minute walk. Here’s the site….https://www.jacksonvillefair.com/p/o...e-game-parking

The parking in lot X is 5-minute walk to the stadium.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Post-Game Tailgate

This is a free to all event. We are coming back to Lot X to celebrate the win. Everyone is welcome. Whatever food and drink are left from the two previous events that Arrowhead South purchased will be free to all. First come, first serve.

A cash bar will be available. Personal coolers are allowed in this event.

The stadium is a 5-minute walk to our Lot X tailgate.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Hotels

Cheri Jones: I am the one who got the rate and to my knowledge they never closed it. Just has to be Sat, Sun, Mon as Friday the hotel is not accepting arrivals. To my knowledge they never closed our group rates. If your reservation is affected by the Sept 6th closure (only 2 people to my knowledge booked on Friday night) go online and rebook for Sat or Sun, or Sat/Sun

https://www.hyatt.com/en-US/group-booking/JAXRJ/G-KCCB

otherwise we are all good.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to purchase upper level from the Jags:

Here is the Jaguars provided link for direct purchase to order tickets in the upper deck to sit with Chief fans:

https://fevo.me/arrowheadsouth

-------------------------------------------------------

How to purchase the lower level seats or specific sections from the Jags:

Please email Alexa Olneya (olneya@nfl.jaguars.com) or call/text at (904) 633-4673. If they call, please have them leave a voicemail. Email and text are preferred. Alexa has been great to us. Lots of praise from everyone. Make sure you let her know you are with Arrowhead South to get to the front of the line and sit by fellow Chief fans.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Heartfelt thanks are due to these great people and organizations. We are utilizing a bare bones expense system to keep the ticket money going to the charities.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Fun stuff:

We are going to have a donated backdrop/banner made specifically for the Jacksonville events. We will have a red carpet for people to stand on in front of the backdrop and fans can have their pictures taken by a professional to memorialize their trip to the Jacksonville game and Arrowhead South events. They will be posted online to be downloaded for free.

At the Arrowhead South Jacksonville events we are going raffle off a one of a kind customized Chiefs cooler. Hand built with all top quality wood. $5 a ticket or 5 entries for $20. Proceeds to benefit the Patrick Mahomes foundation.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update 09/5

Current total of tickets sold:

Saturday Night VIP fundraiser....194 tickets sold.

Sunday pre-game tailgate ....... 467 tickets sold.



Thanks to all the volunteers who have contributed to make these events a success. I can already smell the deliciousness coming from the smoker. Brisket, Burnt ends, Pork Loin etc. courtesy of the KC BBQ society and Fergilious. Sharing some cold beverages with fellow Chief fans. Watching Mahomes on the field live take the next step in this golden era of Chiefs football.

And the best part.... Enjoying the festivity while raising money for charities that are doing great work for people in need. It’s going to be a great weekend!

--------------------------

For the record and keeping this in the open so everyone can have confidence that there was no shenanigans with the charity monies.....All monies from the Sat. night fundraiser and Sunday tailgate ticket sales will be split evenly between the Patrick Mahomes foundation, Nick Foles foundation and the KC BBQ society's scholarship programs for kids. The money raised by the sale of those great tickets in the 3rd row behind the bench that were donated and the raffle proceeds from the customized Chiefs cooler will not be split evenly but will be given to the Patrick Mahomes foundation exclusively. The Nick Foles charity group will be having a silent auction at the fundraising event. They are running it, setting it up etc. That money will go to the Nick Foles foundation exclusively. The KC BBQ Society may also do something at the events. If they do all the work, run it, they can keep that money raised exclusively too.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Arrowhead South doesn't collect nor have access to the money being raised. That is controlled legally by a 501.C charity. They will distribute the collected funds to the charities. Arrowhead South will publicly announce the number of tickets sold periodically before the weekend. We will be reviewing and inspecting the books. The results will be made public to prevent any shenanigans.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: 09/18
We still have a couple of invoices out that may need to be paid but we are comfortable saying that we raised at least $15,000 for charity over the two day's.

I guess we ran out of group tickets in the upper deck last night. Alexa from the Jags added more tickets in that section with us this am. Tickets at the link are available again.

That means we have sold 253 tickets to Chief fans in that section alone. All of these tickets were together, sitting next to each other. Thats going to be really cool. Turning the Jags stadium Red baby!

The Hilton rate is all done through the BBQ competition organization. We have to finalize the BBQ competition first. We are working with them, the Jags, the Patrick Mahomes foundation etc. and lining up sponsors to pay the $25K costs to pull off this BBQ competition. Making sure our sponsors don't conflict with the Jags sponsors. The Mahomes foundation has no objections etc. These BBQ teams are the best of the best in the world. We get to eat their competition BBQ for free at the Sunday tailgate. Here’s their website. https://www.nationalbbqleague.com/

We are also planning a BBQ event on Saturday night that will be a Patrick Mahomes fundraiser.

We have a professional event planner who does large events for a living volunteering her efforts to help us pull off the biggest, baddest Chiefs tailgate Florida has ever seen.

I’m sure we will have beach days, parties at night etc. We have many people in our group from Jacksonville. So many that we are starting an Arrowhead South chapter in Jacksonville. They will be able to give us the 411 on all the cool stuff the locals know about.

One of the reasons for the delay in announcing the weekend activities is that we are an all volunteer group. We dont have any money. Not a cent. We dont ask for or accept money, sell our groups info etc. We are not a 501c. Just Chief fans for Chief fans. We have to convince all these sponsors, Jags etc. to give us stuff for free.


Lets get together at the tailgate and share a cold one.

Call Alexa with the Jags. Leave a VM. Info is in the OP.

Tell her your with the Arrowhead South group. That’ll get you to the front of the line. She will tell you where she has seats left in the lower level sitting by fellow Chief fans. Lots of reports from Chief fans that she has been great in accommodating their specific needs.

🏩 HOTEL ROOM BLOCK 🏩

I know that there are many people who are anxious about booking their hotel room. Thank you for your patience. As much as I would have loved to create a room block with a hotel closer to the stadium/ downtown area- factors such as higher rates, additional parking charges, minimum booking requirement and attrition forced me to expand the radius. This hotel might not be for everyone but for those who are open to staying a little further away, I personally think this is a great deal! Please use the link below to book your reservation. If you choose to call the hotel directly to book your room, reference the group code "AHS"or Arrowhead South. Feel free to contact me if you need help or have questions. I blocked off 30 rooms per night, the hotel is willing to offer 50 rooms per night and will add more if we need as long as inventory is available. ️
